Some wonderful holiday gifts - AFTER A LONG TIME

Well, it's been a long, long time since I indulged in some real guilty pleasure, so when one of my best friends was returning to India from Texas, I couldn't help asking her to get a few stuff for me - A small lot of some of the treasures I've been eying for ages!

Now for the sneak peek on the lot:

The trucks made by Herpa - the red and the blue heavy trucks. The depressed flat car on which the red one sits is a Micro-Trains kit.


The black and the white trucks  in the kit, well the containers are not the part of the kit of course!

Here is the rest of the lot - still in packets - trees, a couple of MT box car kits, an oil tanker, Model Power lights, WS biker gang, six Kato cars...

Now, coming to the last bit, one of my most dearest purchases so far - the Kato NW2! and I took the liberty to appoint fat Mack the job of the engineer, along with putting some black paint on the smoke stacks. Here are some photos, and a video.

I have to say it's the best switcher that you can have in N scale! Extra ordinary in detail, with a clear interior cab where you can even put a figure, very nice external detailing, excellent pulling power and slow speed performance - highly recommended for every N scaler!

And now, here is a quick birds eye view of the port - Did I mention that I completed the grain elevator in the mean time? I guess not! :)

Stay tuned for more updates... Yes, there is more... :)
